it was a lack of understanding of the importance of the latino community. i think they don't understand how fast we're growing, how influential we have become and how politicians are now forced to respond to the issues that affect latinos. i think that they over saw that. i don't think they really paid attention. >> sometimes we are invisible and we are fighting so hard not to be invisible. the commission of presidential debates are stuck in the 1950s. they still think the country could be divided between men and women and that's it. they do not realize that one in every three persons in the united states is from a minority. they think it is okay it have an african-american president but they don't think it's okay to have an african-american or hispanic journalist as a moderator for the debates. what we did, it was our wonderful response to this oversight, this huge oversight. instead they didn't want to invite us tthe party so we had our own party. >> and that party turned out pretty good. >> so, yeah, maybe. >> you mean the presidential forums you're having? >> yes. >> which came after you wer
that closed achievement for african-americans are listed here. closing the achievement gap for latino students are listed here. english language learners similarly. so one thing we asked our principals to share with us is in your voice what you attribute to some of these accelerated growth areas into, and recently we had the opportunity to hear them share with their colleagues and we tried to summarize a few examples of that. i'm not going to read all of these points but i want to point out some of the things that were mentioned by our principals starting with the first row there. our principal at rosa parks, paul jacob son and you were recognized as a school closing the gap for english language learners. we know that the data has improved 19-point 2%. what is going on there? the principal in the description gave three categories. i focused. i fixed. i featured. they talked about structure and assessment. they made a conscious effort at reducing suspensions and having restorative practices and pay attention to english development as well and collaboration was an important p
that perhaps african-americans and latinos have. we call it sometimes affirmative action for white people, because we made so many things possible for white people. but you have this divide, where white people are, like, "we did not get any help. what are you talking about?" but they did. tavis: the tea party and others are not filled with african american members, so how do you explain that? the people that receive so much help, the gi bill, social security, the things he laid out in the book, how do you explain that the people doing the attacking are by and large people not of color? >> well, we really have a problem in the country of deserving versus undeserving poor. something that you deserve and worked for, other people getting a different kind of help. i think every study shows -- why we saw with the tea party, they would say, "get the government out of my medicare," not realizing that medicare is a government program. the way government has helped them is kind of like the colorless, odorless entity in their lives. a percentage of the budget that goes towards the traditional welfar

the widest gap. it is something we are being attentive to. african-american, latino, native american and samoan. and while the district overall trend was 10% growth, what you notice over a five-year trend is african-american growth has bested the district average of 13% improvement, latino at 10% equal to the district's growth, native american at 14%, and samoan at 11%. the next slide is similar, but in the content area of mathematics on the state test. again, 8.2% district overall growth trend, african-american comparison 13% growth over five years, latino 10%, native american 7, and samoan 11%. >> superintendent, i'm just wondering if there is anyway maybe later on to get the numbers of where the anglo and asian-american students are. >> okay. so, maybe in this next slide, we get to that point. so, this next slide is actually on the english language arts achievement gap. so, what's highlighted in this one are two line graphs, one for african-american/latino, and the top line graph actually represents the district average. and what i want to point out is, again, a different way to r

students, and you also see the same pattern for the targeted groups, african-american and latinos and we do it also for english learners and special ed, so each school has their sample acceleration in of these and gives an index how they're moving their students compared to other students in the district. our second -- actually goal one. it's just presented as second is accessing equities. under accessing equity we will look at the same results but aggregating the data for the different subgroups of programs and definitely eighth grade algebra because that's a milestone in the district. so when we looked at all the ethnic groups where the performance is below the district's average they were african-american, latino, native american and samoan and in the first slide where we clapped 10% was the overall district trend, so each group either matched or exceeded the district's five year trend which is what we would call narrowing the achievement gap, so can you see the group -- you can see the scores of every sub group. the next slide that we will show is how did the other subgroups do? y
in the public schools, its was no secret to coleman advocates parents and students that african-american, latino and pacific islanders were receiving a different quality of education. in 2007 we found that african-americans were ranked dead last in api scores for all major urban school districts in california. this was the low below even special education students in their api scores for [speaker not understood]. the next year coleman fought for the board of education to close the achievement gap. that resolution to ensure the upcoming district strategic plan was focused on addressing the racial achievement grape in inequity in our school. thankfully the board passed that unanimously. however, the gap has widened, especially for african-american students. many of you might have seen the report that came out talking about the 2011 released analysis comparing the progress of california school districts. unfortunately san francisco received an overall grade of d. and in particular the african-american students as it relates to sfusd, we ranked 127 out of 128. i want to have one of our parent leader

with these three subgroups listed, african-american, latino and samoan is you see four columns after that. whether they're on track, you see a c. these are students who are getting a c or better in the a through g core sequence. that means they're taking courses for california state university or university of california eligible. so, these are students who are on track for doing that. these are our present juniors in high school right now. you'll notice that we have 2,122 students who are on track. it's not a typo. we have the exact same number of students based on sort of our best data today that are not on track. so, that means we don't have a c or better in all of their courses on that a through g sequence. in the third or fourth column where it says on track or off track d, these are students who are getting a d or better in that same core sequence. so, they can get a d in the a through g core sequence and meet district graduation requirements because they're taking the core sequence that they wouldn't be eligible to apply for a csu or uc school. so, what you're going to notice in the fourth
